So glad you’re here!

This is a partial, evolving list of texts that address women’s liberation in Zimbabwe. It includes scholarly articles, books, essays, films, novels, and poetry. A caveat: not everyone on these lists identifies as a feminist or works within that political tradition. However, their work might still be relevant to your thinking/researching/grappling with the history and future of feminist thinking and organizing in Zimbabwe. Where possible, I have tried to include links to the texts. Texts marked with an asterisk (*) are available for viewing at the National Archives of Zimbabwe. If there is anything you feel is missing from this list, email me at rrmudiwa at gmail dot com.

Oh, and the image above is from a women’s protest in support of the Legal Age of Majority Act (LAMA) circa 1982. Passed two years after independence, LAMA gave black women over 18 legal adulthood, which they had been denied under colonial rule. The image is from the Dec 1983-Jan 1984 issue of Moto Magazine.
